    Default New to the world of forums and comics...ha

    Okay, so I am very new to 'forums'. I have never actually posted in one and I don't know much about 'classic comics' but..my Step Dad and my Mom are getting married in June. They are going all out to have a fun wedding and my Step Dad and ALL of his groomsmen are comic book kind of guys...I am looking for t-shirts of all their favorite comic book people(?) for them to wear under their wedding day get ups. And also smaller action figures for their "boutineers".

    US Agent
    Captain Marvel (Kree Warrior)

    These are two that I cannot find to save my life.

    I found a US Agent shirt but it is red white and blue...not red white and black which according to my Step Dad is the correct color combination. I'm just looking for a clue as to where I could possibly find these things, or if I am hitting a dead end because I do not want to waste hours searching the web if I'm not going to find anything.


    Just looking for some help, I don't know if I even came to the right website for something like this.

    Sometimes when I can't find a t-shirt available commercially, I go by friends who have a business doing airbrushing and tattoos and personalised birthday cakes. These guys buy comics, especially indy titles because the artwork insides opens up conundrums and other imagery in their minds. Finished product looks better than those produced en masse and is one of a kind. If you know anyone who does airbrushing, give them a pic of what you want (a good airbrusher can adapt it) and get something custom made.

    I know a great company on the web that would have these, but I'm blanking on the name/contact info. I'm checking with some people and will post again when I get it.

    The main distributor for comic related merchandise in the US is a company called Diamond. Their website is located here:

    http://www.previewsworld.com/Home/1/1/71/940

    If something is listed there, any comic shop in the US can order it for you. It would be a good starting point for your search, it would at least let you know what is commercially available from the main companies that produce the stuff. Not every licensee of comic merchandise uses Diamond though, but it is a good starting point.

    There is superherostuff.com and 80stees.com for the t-shirts or you could go the homemade route and get iron-on transfer paper and print them out on your printer.

    For the action figures there's Amazon, Ebay and a site called manofactionfigures.com. There's also entertainmentearth.com.

    The "Marvel Universe" series of figures on these ebay searches would probably work best for what you want, as they are approximately 3.75 inches tall.

    Found the T-shirt site. Frankly, I'll be amazed if they don't have shirts with the characters you need:
